    .380 auto scarce, hard to find.

    Now add 45 acp to the list, at least around here. Suddenly I can't find the stuff, and if I find a box of 230g FMJ, it's $28.

    all the favorite online outlets: "Out of Stock".

    .40 S&W - ubiquitious. Tripping over the stuff in stores. Falling out of the skies.

    what gives

    Hence the reason I got rid of my .45acp built a .22 so I could plink around cheaper. I have a .40S&W and enjoy picking the ammo off of my ammo tree in the back yard.

    It seems that the manufactorers set up for different callibers on a cycle. I'm sure that the .45 acp fmj will be available soon.

    BTW not the best price but I bought some at Keiths for $22 a box a couple of days ago.

    I thought I saw some at Fisherman's Marine in OR City this last weekend. I picked up some 223 and 357 mag.

    They had two boxes of .25 which I have not see for a long time. But alas no 380 caliber, defensive or plain jane stuff. Next time I see 380 I am going to put up more than just a couple of boxes if the price is reasonable.:thumbup:

    I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.

    I got dibs on some of that 45ACP and some 380 if you have it. :)

    One of the reasons I went with .40 over 9mm or .45 in both my handguns..

    Next gun is gonna be 10mm though..
